The National Rowing Hall of Fame

On March 9, 2009, it was exactly one year since the National Rowing Hall of Fame opened its doors at the Mystic Seaport Museum in Mystic, Connecticut. Then a dream came true for many of us rowing history buffs. There are some nice videos out there showing "The Hall" and the exhibit "Let Her Run" that goes with it. The following video is showing interviews with the three men that made it all happen, Hart Perry, The National Rowing Foundation's executive director, Tom E. Weil and Bill Miller, two of the USA's prime rowing historians and scholars.

Hart, Tom, Bill, and all you volunteers that help building it up and now keep it running - THANK YOU!
